Respect PSU alot but completely disagree with his take on Harbaugh.
There are definately coaching issues and I am not a fan of either of our coordinators (moreso Cam...Pees has had to deal with the serious decline of our 2 cornerstone players and an unreal rash of injuries to basically every single impact defensive player we have), but people need to look at the fact that the years of drafting late (and the inability/refusal to stack the board for future drafts), has really hurt this team. Ozzie no longer seems to nail all of his late first round picks, and in fact has traded out of his best round twice in the last 4 years with little to show for it.
In addition to letting Cam go, we need better scouting and may have to start taking more chances with players with issues (too raw/off field issues) in order to restock the quality depth we had.
Long time lurker first time poster. I was always of the impression that this was all injuries and not Harbaughs fault. However I have completely changed my tune lately. Lets take a few things and look at them objectively.
1)This team is set up exactly like the Philadelphia eagles were when Reid took over. Great defense so-so offense that always used WR as a scape goat.
2)Terrible to AWFUL time management skills. (see last years AFC championship for proof)
3)QB was always considered avg by some and better than avg by others
4)NEVER won a superbowl and made it to one (ravens making superbowl has yet to come to fruition)
5)Harbaugh refuses to fire inept coordinators (cam, mattison (never would have left if not for dream michigan job). Reid has been the exact same way.
These things are all too similar. I ridicule my friends from philly all the time and now we have Andy Reids clone in Baltimore.
Calling Harbaugh a top 5 coach is even more ridiculous.
As for the calls from Boulder to bring in Rex.... What the actual fuck have you been watching? Madden? Because you sure as shit haven't been watching football.
Harbaugh has his faults, but a coach of a team that's been contending for AFC championships 4 straight years IS NOT going to get fired. Especially in a year in which the team is riddled with injuries and still guaranteed to have a winning record.
